Thornton Hits the Links to Host His Charity Golf Tournament

MIDDELTON, MA - When waking up on a beautiful summer Monday in Boston, it seemed like a perfect day for hitting the links. Sun beaming down, no rain in the forecast, a slight breeze.

Lucky for Shawn Thornton, that Monday - August 12th - marked the day of his annual charity golf tournament, Putts & Punches for Parkinson’s, at Ferncroft Country Club in Middelton, Massachusetts.

"This is a pretty fun one for me - get to come out on a nice day and golf and, see a lot of good people," said Thornton.

"I’m here year round, so it’s pretty easy for me to give back."
